Silencer Reviews

  1. Silencer Innovation: Rugged Surge

    When Henry Graham (the designer of the Specwar suppressor line) left SilencerCo, we had a feeling we'd see him again - and that happened last year when he started Rugged Suppressors. Their first product, the Rugged Surge 7.62, did not disappoint - and the bar has been set extremely high for their(..)
  2. What is First Round Pop?

    Most people who start looking at suppressors, come across the term First Round Pop (also known as FRP) pretty quickly. At a very basic level, the term First Round Pop is referring to the first round that's fired through a suppressor after it's been out of use.  Since the suppressor is (..)
  3. Silencer Innovation: Sig SRD Series

    Every year at SHOT, we get to see all the cool new suppressors that are coming down the pipe; but, it typically takes 6-8 months before we can really see what works and what doesn't. Over the next couple of weeks, we're running a series of 'Silencer Innovation' articles to highlight some of the (..)
  4. What is Silencer Shop Authority?

    At Silencer Shop, we've always worked to provide as much reliable information as possible to help our customers make the best purchase decision possible for their needs. Over time, we've released that information in various forms, including: Videos, Facebook, and our Blog - as well (..)
  5. Suppressor Innovation : 2015

    Every year we see lots of great new suppressor models announced at SHOT, but we don't really get to see what works, what sells, and what flops until the end of summer. This year was an interesting one for suppressors because we saw several innovative products; from both new and existing (..)
  6. One Year with the SilencerCo Salvo 12

    It has been one year since the launch of the SilencerCo Salvo 12, the first commercially viable shotgun silencer on the market. The Salvo made a big splash when it was announced, and for good reason too. It has the ability to fire in 4 different sizes from 6”, 8”, 10”, and the (..)
  7. How we test Silencers

    A lot of you have asked how we test silencers for our videos here at Silencer Shop. In this post, I'll explain how it's done. The MIL-STD-1474D is the standard military test to measure potential hearing damage from noise. This is the industry-accepted standard for testing silencers, too. It (..)
  8. Hunting with the SilencerCo Omega

    I have to admit that the first thing I thought of when I heard about the new SilencerCo Omega suppressor was my first car - a 1976 Oldsmobile Omega. :) Fortunately, this new suppressor is nothing like the car (although I do have to admit that I loved that thing). Anyway, this last weekend (..)
  9. SilencerCo Salvo Review

    We spent some more time at the range with the SilencerCo Salvo 12 this week; and, once again the results were impressive. One of the great things about the Salvo is its modular design that allows it to be configured as either a 12", 10", 8", or 6" suppressor, depending on the shooter's needs (..)
  10. Hands On with the SilencerCo Salvo

    This last week, we spent some more hands-on time with the SilencerCo Salvo 12 - and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. We pulled out the sound meter and tested the 12" configuration with multiple types of shot, from #8 down to #4 - and will be posting videos on our tests (..)
